Let's Dish Challenge

 I always enjoy Kathleen's Let's Dish Challenge - coming up with what she tells us  to use! Click on her name for lots more inspiration.

I decided to use my favorite color yellow, with white for my two colors. 

 Bright yellow plates from TJ Maxx and polka dot plates were from there as well, years ago. Napkins from Kohl's.

I looked around the house for something special to use for the centerpiece.

What could be more special than the Blessed Mother? 

The silk flowers are from Dollar Tree

 Crystal goblets and crystal look flatware handles
 Love the yellows!

I almost used my yellow polka dot place mats, but decided the simple look on the Battenburg lace tablecloth was best. What do you think?

I'm also linking to Susan's Tablescape Thursday, click on her name for lots more fun.

I thought you might use yellow as the accent color today! I love these challenges too. I think you chose the right option with the plates directly on your gorgeous tablecloth. This is such a pretty table. Linda

OK, how did I miss this earlier? Usually I see your tables before the party begins, but this is the first time I'm seeing this.

Since yellow officially became my life color at the end of last year, I'm particularly drawn to this one. It's bright and festive and HAPPY. I love the plates, but my favorite thing is the napkin. I also love it with or without the placemat. It seems like such a small change, but it really does give the table two unique looks.

So pretty, K! I love polka dots and the yellow is so cheerful!
Hope your puter gets fixed soon!


I love this table setting with white and pretty yellow polka dot plates! Hope your pewter is fixed back; as I love pewter. Lovely yellow centerpiece with sweet Merry. Big hugs,

What a happy table! I love the way you mixed the size of the polka dots with the larger ones on the plates and the smaller ones on the placemats. Your tablecloth is so pretty and I like that flatware - it adds an unusual touch!
